It's not up at his website yet but Johann Hari has interviewed all three party leaders about their queer credentials. The article reminds me that no matter how loathsome bLiar is on many other issues Labour have been good for the gay community, getting rid of some inequalities, although I wasn't aware that the ban on gays in the military had been lifted. Charles Kennedy is as you would expect but the big surprise is Michael Howard who comes very close to an apology for Section 28 although Johann's opinion piece and, presumably the magazine article this is all from, show he's still got some remaining prejudice about having to 'protect children' from 'pretend relationships'. Still, it's a start.
